Flask introduction

Flask is a python microframework for building web applications or for rapid prototyping one.

sudo easy_install virtualenv python3 -m venv venv --- create a venv directory for the project source venv/bin/activate -- activate the virtual env. pip install flask -- install flask
The idea for virtual environment is to import packages like flask only in a copy of the python Virtual environment and not pollute the global python installation.
An example flask application:
from flask import Flask, render_template app = Flask(__name__)

@app.route('/') def index(): return render_template('index.html')

@app.route('/user/') def user(name): return render_template('user.html', name=name)

if __name__ == '__main__':
Hello, {{ name }}!
Run: Python
It will start the web server
If you browse to
It should o/p Hello, watsh in browser.

Mac OSX: can't start Git - Intellij IDEA complains

The solution is: in terminal, run 'sudo xcodebuild -license' and then agree to the terms.


MongoDB is a NoSQL document-oriented database which stores data as BSON (Binary Script Object Notation) documents.
Salient features of MongoDB are: Document Oriented - aggregates the data in minimal number of documents. Ad hoc queries - like regular expression search, by ranges or field is supported. Indexing - any field in the document can be indexed. Replication - high availability is supported by maintaining replicas of data in more than one replica set member. The data is eventually consistent between the replica members. Load Balancing - uses sharding (a shard is a master with one or more slaves) to distribute the data split into ranges (based on shard key) between multiple shards. File storage - supports storing a file not as a single document but split across multiple shards - GridFS feature of MongoDB comes built in and is used by NGNIX and lighthttpd. Aggregation
